|Title:||Friction-wear behavior of shot peened aluminium 7075-T651 alloy|
|Abstract:||The present study reports the friction-wear behavior of un-peened and shot peened aluminium 7075-T651 alloy against aluminium 7075-T651 alloy in dry sliding condition. Shot peening was done using CI steel ball (40-45 HRC) with 0.6 mm diameter. Phase Structure, hardness, compressive residual stress, surface morphology and surface features are characterized using X-ray diffractometer (XRD), Vickers hardness tester, noncontact-surface profile meter and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Sliding wear test were conducted against aluminium 7075-T651 alloy in dry sliding condition at room temperature using a pin on disc apparatus. A 25% increase in the hardness was seen for shot peened aluminium 7075-T651 alloy. Shot peened aluminium 7075-T651 alloy has induced maximum compressive residual stress of -188 MPa. No new phases were formed for the shot peened aluminium 7075-T651 alloy, however, the shift in the plane is observed. There was also a drastically increase in surface roughness in spite of the peening process. Adhesive wear was the dominant wear mechanism for the un-peened specimen, whereas, it was reduced for the shot peened surfaces.|
